I am a lifelong amateur astronomer and “telescope nut.” I’m primarily a visual observer, and enjoy observing deep sky objects — especially globular clusters, planetary nebulae and galaxy clusters. I believe astronomy education and public outreach is vital to amateur and professional astronomy, and engage in sidewalk astronomy whenever I can.
I was married to a wonderful woman for the past several years, but it just didn’t work out and we are now divorced. We still talk occasionally and remain friends, which I know is a rarity but that’s just how things are. Our cats remain with me, and I can’t imagine not having cats in the house ever again. During the day, I am the Technology Evangelist for GSC — a company I’ve been with since 1992.
